Just got Packet 3...

Timeline

I sent away for a new passport last Thursday, and I should have it 2 weeks from that day... Should I arrange a medical now anyway? If they are going to give me a date quite far off into the future, then I'd be as well to get it now, but if it's sooner than expected I may not have the passport on time and have to pay a cancellation fee.

Vaccination records... I am going to make an appointment tomorrow with a GP to see if they have any such records on me. I haven't been to any kind of medical practice since 1994, so any further info from anyone here would be appreciated.

Me and my fiance did not make copies of the i-129f forms we sent, I hope this is not going to be a big deal. She is going to post me evidence that we sent along with the petition and the NOA2 letter. More pictures, emails, etc... Anything else she should send me?

I think those are all my questions for now... I am generally confused and worried I'm leaving something out that will cause delays or a rejection later :help:

You will need the vaccination records for later after entry to the USA and when adjusting status.

US citizen should send you a completed I-134, along with financial evidence to back up the numbers indicated on the I-134.

One thing about I-134, the directions included with I-134 are very old, USCIS has no reason to update them since USCIS has no application for that form.

The consulates tend to treat the I-134 like a mini-I-864 as so prefer the same financial evidence as the I-864.

In our case this what the I-134 included.

  • I-134 signed and notarized.

  • SIMPLE Tax transcripts from the IRS for past 3 years, (Redundant for the (1040,W2,1099) but are free from the IRS http://www.irs.gov/faqs/faq1-6.html

  • Photo copy of IRS form 1040, and W2s for past 3 years (Not necessary if you provide the transcripts)

  • Letter from my employer stating annual salary, job responsibility, and that is full time, on company letterhead.

  • Photo copies of past month or so of pay stubs up to a few weeks before the interview.
My income was well above the povertyline so I did not include any asset data (LIKE BANK STATEMENTS or property values).

If your income exceeds 125% of the povertyline when counting yourself, prospective immigrant and any dependents, then don't bother with assets (401K, Bank balance, Stocks etc..), it is just extra un-needed data to provide, the consular officer is most concerned with INCOME.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

As far as the doc's appointment goes, I'm sure if you call their office and explain your situation they would work with you. If I remember correctly (it's been a while so please someone correct me if I'm wrong), I was able to choose the date which suited me best for the medical. I'd assume the doc's office in Scotland would allow you to do the same :)

Not sure about the vaccination records, since I was able to obtain mine from the doctor's easily. They should still have your records even if you haven't been since 1994, but obviously if you've had any vaccinations since then they wouldn't have records of that. But if you had your BCG etc, then they should be able to give you a record of that.

I think as far as evidence goes you're on the right track - it doesn't hurt to take more docs than you need, so take copies of everything you've submitted as evidence so far - I always think it's better to be over-prepared than under-prepared! I think I took a copy of the I-129f we'd submitted but I don't remember if the officer asked for them at the interview, so I don't know whether it will be an issue or not, but hopefully someone else will be able to clear it up for you!

Advice - apply for your police certificate ASAP as it takes the longest to get!

Phone the doctors office it is normal for them to have appointments within a week or you can arrange a date which is more suitable to you.

You might even find it more convenient to come to London just once and so schedule the medical for the day before you visa interview. The downside to that is it will delay your visa a couple of days until the Embassy get the results from the doctors, but it saves the cost of two trips to London.

Ewww thats horrible! You'd think they'd have one in England, one in Scotland, one in Wales and one in NI to be a bit more convenient! Although, this doesn't surprise me.

They did have a company that had offices in 3 places in England do the medicals at one time.

For whatever reason it didn't last very long at all and went back to being with a different practice just in London.

Thanks for the replies.

I have another stupid question which I forgot to ask. When signing the I-129f, my fiance convinced me that I had to write my full name and make it legible. I have always just signed my name as the first initial, then the last name which wouldn't be very legible.

So when signing further documents for immigration, should I just do my normal signature and risk them asking why the signatures are completely different? Or should I try to do what I did the last time, even though it will probably be different anyway because I can't remember exactly how I did it?
